BBMP chief to inquire into garbage scam

Sources in the BBMP said, the High Court, after vacating the stay, had asked the BBMP Commissioner to hear the grievances of the garbage contractors and take further action.

Following reports about the scam, the previous BBMP Commissioner had ordered an inquiry by the Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force. The Task Force found a scam and recommended for action against the contractors and Health Department officials.

In the meantime, some contractors got a stay against the inquiry and the possible action thereafter. The contractors had contended that their voice remained unheard during the course of investigation. The High Court recently vacated the stay entitling the BBMP Commissioner to inquire into the matter, after hearing the contractors. It was learnt that the Commissioner would hear the contractors and initiate further action.
